Will Work for Makeup

It’s no secret that I’m far from a makeup expert, but I’m trying. It helps to have a best friend who is an addict and enjoys helping me out. There isn’t a wide selection of products available in my city, and with Target closing, the options are going to be a lot less awesome. Soon I’ll be saying goodbye to E.L.F., NYX, Pixi, Sonia Kashuk and a bunch more I’ve grown attached to.

I’ve struggled for a while with spending money on makeup at all, so its taken me quite a while to warm up to the idea of paying non-drugstore prices. But, over the holidays, my mom and I swung into a Sephora in Montreal, and  when I expressed my dislike of the amount everything cost my mom said, “If you’re looking for quality products, you’re going to have to pay for it.” While I didn’t buy anything that day, I took note of some products I was interested in so that I could quiz Megan about them when she got home from her trip to Mexico (jealous).

After a few back and forths, and numerous hours combing their website, I decided to give Sephora a go. A few clicks later and I had placed my very first order, for a whopping total of $200.

I had an eye infection when my order showed up, and I was under strict doctors orders not to wear makeup around my eyes, or wear my contacts, so I haven’t had a lot of opportunity to try anything out. As soon as I’ve thoroughly tested it all out, I’ll do a review of some sort. Promise!

P.S. I bought a new North Face parka over the weekend, and my only thought when I made the purchase was “I could be spending this money at Sephora.” Safe to say I may have a new addiction.

Hope you all had  fantastic weekend!

  1. you have to try Younique makeup – it's all natural, paraben-free, not tested on animals, gluten free etc. – all that good stuff – but it's actually also AMAZING makeup, at totally reasonable prices, delivered to your door. i only became a presenter because i love the product, I'm not just saying this because i sell it! if you only try one thing, make it the 3D fibre lash mascara – gives you the look of extensions, but with the ease on and off of normal mascara. I'm sure you've heard of it, but if not, google and you'll find a billion reviews. trust me on this one, it's $35 you will NOT regret.

  2. Good post! How do you like the Tarte primer?? I've been using Hourglass mineral veil, which I find has been making a big difference in how my foundation looks and def helps me from looking like an oil slick (delays it by a few hours anyway)…only thing is I've been breaking out unusually lately and may have to eliminate my hourglass to see if that's the culprit…..sigh…

    and what philosophy product did you buy?? I've been hankerin' for the miracle worker oil free lotion….

    The Avalon mall has announced sephora is opening there soon by the way….there goes my paycheck….
